    Any pics on the truck. I like the wheels but I'm not sure how that offset would look.

    It would be similar to stock. +18 offset on an 8" rim is 5.25" backspacing.

    If you go into my profile you can see bunch of pics. I put 285/70/17 bfg all terains, and no rubbing issues at all (with a 3" lift.) 265s fit with no lift. i have pis with and without lift in profile.

    Are you sure they are +18 offset?

    33's tend to rub with backspacing larger than 4.5".

    yes, discount tire said stock rims are a +30, and these were a +18. the new rims i just put on are a -6 and they rub. Negative numbers hold tire out farther, (am i correct?)

    Correct, the lower the offset, the more the tires stick out. But you can't compre offsets of different rims unless those rims have the same width.

    FWIW I believe stockers are 7" wide, 5.5" BS which is +38mm offset.

    im just going off what discount told me. the rims didnt stick out from under the truck any with the 265 tires on the moto metel rims. the moto metel rims are 17x8, my new rims are 17x8.5. i know i couldnt put my 285 tires on my stock rims (even with 3"lift), because they would hit my ucas. i had 1/2" between my 285 bfgs on the moto metal rims and uca.

    Yeah it should be stamped on them somewhere. Sometimes it's preceded by the letters "ET". So the stamp would say something like "ET +18"

    Yeah then it's +18.

    So for anyone that asks, the backspacing is approx 5.25".
